6:02 pm
that time? >> reporter: absolutely the time of day, the middle of the afternoon, it is labor day, a holiday, sit as far asly populated downtown here but, yes, as you point out a lot of officers and firefighters. but, again, they -- in terms of their strategy, they were just going to let him climb and not get in his way. >> all right. well it did end safely at least. joe vasquez, thanks. we wanted to show you what happened to that flag he was carrying once the ordeal was all said and done. from chopper 5 you can see san francisco firefighters there giving it the proper ceremonial folding, not something that's taught everywhere these days. no word yet on where the flag heads from here though. all right. we're going to move on now to the latest on a bizarre east bay killing spree. search crews are back poking through a pittsburgh landfill looking for a man believed to be the fifth victim. ken makovec shows us it is a painstaking process. >> reporter: it is day four of the search through the keller canyon landfill here in pittsburgh. authorities are searching for any sign of the whereabouts of

6:06 pm
you'll see this ad tomorrow. >> we have to live within our means, and we need to put power closer to the people and no new taxes without voter approval. >> reporter: while meg whitman spent $20 million on tv ads, this is his first ad, quite frankly because he doesn't have the money she has. the former ebay chief may spend $150 of her own money on this campaign. compare that to jerry brown who, as at the end of june, had 23 million dollars in his campaign could havers. so for all of whitman's money and the exposure it buys, the race is still considered neck and neck. >> i think what has happened is after the 125 million of spending by ms. whitman, people have stopped listening, there is no other explanation for why the race is a dead heat. normally you would think she should be 15 or 20 points ahead, but it's tied, and that tells me that labor day was the time to start a. >> reporter: whitman's campaign has another take. >> there are a number of polls that show meg whitman up a
6:07 pm
little. but it is a close race. we expected this to be a close race all along. >> reporter: and while his campaign has been quiet, organized labor has not, spending $14 million to digits credit meg whitman. there were more californians out of office when he left office than when he took office so he is trying to show a small part of the proof, if you were one of the people unemployed at the end of his term, you would know how bad it was back then. >> reporter: if union members are concerned at all about how democrats are going to fare in november i will tell you this. one woman who very quietly, discreetly told me she is voting for fiorina over boxer. >> all right. ann, thanks. i'm len ramirez in cupertino. 15 to 30% off everything in the store at one grocery chain but some people didn't come here

6:12 pm
box stores. it survived on customer service. >> customer service is very important and a lot of the big box stores you're just a face in the crowd. >> reporter: it was the way joey franco himself did business starting 70 years ago. the former fruit picker opened his first store in san jose and would extend credit to struggling families who paid him back when he could. but for the last few years it was the pw chain that struggled closing store after store with a shudder the struggling final four stores. >> it's pushing out the smaller supermarkets by making us go to safeway and whole foods and stuff like that. it has pushed out the competition, made the bigger chain more important than the small friendly people-focused kind of supermarkets. it's not helping me as a consumer. >> reporter: and it's not helping the workers either. dana, about 200 union members are losing their job because of the chain closing down, those
6:13 pm
are jobs that are difficult to replace, well-paying union benefit jobs and people can't go into another job like that, they are going to have to go into a lot of looking and be on unemployment for a while. >> a huge loss, a personal connection to a community. sad. >> reporter: exactly. this started in the south bay, been here a long time, if you look around this shopping center we're just a couple -- maybe a half a mile from apple computer and there are a bunch of store fronts that are empty, one right next to it. you look around things are getting pretty bad around here doctor yeah. well hopefully we'll be telling stories soon about the upswing, so -- >> reporter: let's hope so. >> all right len, thank you. small fries, mcchicken sandwich, all a buck each in mcdonalds, but not at one in san francisco. there the dollar menu is different. and while the price difference might seem like chump change, some customers aren't loving it. >> reporter: don't call this a
6:14 pm
2 bit controversy because it's farebeats 50 cents. this is san francisco's haight- ashbury district and in san francisco's haight-ashbury district when you deal with the homeless it is all magnified. there is a mcflurry of activity in san francisco's haight- ashbury which to some makes sense. 50 cents in fact. >> i don't want to pay it if i don't have to, i have use for that dollar. >> reporter: was it the hamburgler who stole the famous $1 menu from this mcdonalds store. you want a mcdouble, not double the price, but now $1.50. i don't eat that stuff anyway. it says on the wall in there if you go in you get cancer. >> reporter: we couldn't find such a sign and for that person to be sit rodriguez technician step of where he was, on the steps, he legally would have had to buy something. i was okay. >> all right. they took out the dollar menu on the same day they had the bathrooms like shut down. we're like why are they really trying to kick tout homeless, no dollar menu, no bathrooms,
6:15 pm
what are we gonna do. >> reporter: tension between the homeless and the mcdonalds here has been as thick as the triple thick shape. some think the it is to make it less attractive to those without an address. >> if i buy food, i'll go in and buy something and come in here and sit down and i they come out you have to leave, i sit here and i bought my food there, and they fit so mad. >> reporter: but some say that extra 50 cents is too much for them. in a statement to cbs5 franchise owner natalie gonzalez says "the speculation as to why i no longer offer anything for $1 in this location is absolutely false. this was a business decision based on factors." >> so this 50-cent rays, do you think sit aimed at the homeless. >> no, i think it is aimed at the fact they get the money, they can get the 50 cents extra, nobody complaints. >> reporter: you can still get a regular hamburger here for 99 cents, that's not filling enough, says some of the
6:16 pm
homeless. let's be clear, there is no public policy issue involved here, mcdonalds, if the owner here wants to raise prices, that's completely her business, and it's capitalism, you can go somewhere else. if you don't like it. and that's not why she is doing it she says but, again, here in the haight anything to have gone do with the homeless is completely magnified. we have sit/lion the ballot in november that would prohibit people from sitting or lying on the sidewalks here in haight, so while it's a bigger issue than you might think, it seems like a two bit controversy. >> i know because when i have kids, when they brought out the dollar menu, other fast food places did the same thing. are there options close by for people in the haight? >> reporter: well there are no other chains in the haight. i think mcdonalds was grandfatherered in i'm sure, but you know, they are very picky about the restaurants
6:17 pm
they allow in. yeah, you can go to, there is a luckies nearby, you can get a sandwich, plenty of places to eat around here that would be cheaper. >> more than a buck. all right. mike sugerman, thank you so much. it's worth a lot more but we're going to give you a penny for your thoughts. roberta? >> you're going to want a refund after this. we're going to cool down for your tuesday, 14 to 22 degrees. that's right. up to 20 degrees cooler tomorrow for your tuesday. san jose, today's high temperature 93 degrees, tomorrow 75 degrees. meanwhile, compare all that with this, our live cbs weather camera now takes us to the beach, and 2, the sounds of ocean beach. we do have the development of the low clouds and the fog just sitting off the monterey coast now beginning to lift up in a northerly direction. blame it on the return of the marine layer, that will be cooling us down. if you're out and about the coast is clear for tonight's sunset, 7:30. now for comparison, i want you
6:18 pm
